KSF WINS AT CARDINAL GAME
There were about 200 KSF supporters in section 270 of Busch Stadium the night of Saturday, June 25, for the Cardinal – Toronto Blue Jays baseball game. Many of these supporters gathered in Kiener Plaza before the game, and we walked together to the stadium wearing our new KSF t-shirts and carrying a sign with our logo on it.
This event was not a fundraiser but an awareness-raiser. The goal was to be visible with our slogan of “supporting families affected by mental illness and suicide.” With our white t-shirts, sitting together near Big Mac Land, our name on the jumbotron, and people asking us what we represented, we believe we clearly reached our goal. It was also encouraging that people from many different backgrounds, who didn’t know one another beforehand, all came together to support our mission.
It was a fun night, the game ended before the rain, the stigma against mental illness and suicide is a little less, and there are now more people who know about KSF. Thanks to all of you who supported this event, either by being there or donating. The Cardinals lost the baseball game but KSF clearly won.
I fully endorse the mission and work of the Karla Smith Foundation & look forward to partnering with them in the BringChange2Mind ongoing campaign.”
